Alright let's do a coral run!

If you ain't there at the scheduled time, well I guess I'll be the winner of some extra gift cards to buy my favorite corals ;)

CARPOOL PEOPLE! If you want to be a carpool please post in this thread and LET us know if you are doing the full trip or starting from one location to another.

At the end of the day we will end up in San Jose which is relatively near most people's locations.

Going to be fun, bummed I won't be able to make it. This is a great chance to show support to our amazing lfs sponsors, and to let them know that bar members really do contribute to their businesses. Many of these stores see us fairly often, But they don't always know that we are BAR members. Let's reinforce the fact that we do indeed support them like they support us!

I am not sure if I will be able to drive/car pool on Sat. My table saw and my right thumb had an argument on Sun morning and guess who won!
I will be going to orthopedics on Thurs so should know by then how well this is going and will respond when I get back.

Murphy's law strikes again.

well, I am learning to type that way right now. pain pills help but the oxycodone has been sending me to the couch for an early nap (2 hrs today). Tomorrow Igo to ER for check up. They called this a compound fracture because I fractured a bone plus a large amount of tissue damage.

Only took me two minutes to type this.

OK, I got my dates mixed up. If all goes well with the healing I should be able to car pool next Sat. Remember, I am in Oakland and will be able to take three people.

Make sure you RSVP if you want free pizza at aquatic collection so I know how much to order. If you don't RSVP and there isn't enough you won't get any!
Denzil will not be going so there currently is no southbay carpool.

Which is fine. Come do the tour or just visit the store near your house.

Itll be fun :)
